Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive device that images skin lesions at high resolution in vivo similar to traditional pathology. This one day course will help attendees develop familiarity with the basic principles and terminology of RCM. The attendees will learn how to differentiate routinely encountered benign cutaneous neoplasm from malignant neoplasm and integrate RCM in their routine clinical workflow. This will be an interactive course with lecture style teaching supplemented by hands-on training on the confocal microscope.

The target audience includes Dermatologists, Dermatopathologists, Surgical Oncologists, Surgical Pathologists, Technologists, Medical Physicist, Industry, Residents, Fellows, Medical Students, and Research fellows.

Space is very limited for this course and we strongly encourage early registration. 

  1. Learn the basic principles of reflectance confocal microscopy
  2. Learn the terminology for reflectance confocal microscopy
  3. Learn to integrate reflectance confocal microscopy in routine clinical practice
  4. Learn to acquire and interpret reflectance confocal microscopy at the bedside
